BracketBot – BP OMowe[edit]

User:A930913, User:Dru_of_Id, User:Legoktm, User:Bgwhite

Saab 29 Tunnan Saab 32 Lansen Saab 35 Draken Saab 37 Viggen Saab JAS 39 Gripen

Format intended as to keep the notes accurate.

BP OMowe (talk) 18:53, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

@BP OMowe: How does keeping the notes accurate depend on there being one closing parenthesis before the notes and one after them? References should come after punctuation; I have modified the articles accordingly. That said, you may want to re-check the references you added. It seems you added a Gripen-related source to the other articles. Huon (talk) 23:10, 23 March 2014 (UTC)
Note and reference strictly concern the translation of the names, with no relevance to the rest of the sentences, hence I tried to make apparent by placing the notes accordingly. Not sure how else to do it, got any suggestions? BP OMowe (talk) 00:15, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
@BP OMowe: They don't also serve as sources for the Swedish name? In that case you may want to move the references within the parentheses, but not in between two closing parentheses. Huon (talk) 22:39, 24 March 2014 (UTC)
Not really, which is why you found Gripen-related links in the other articles. I'll see how to fix it. BP OMowe (talk) 23:52, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

ReferenceBot – Nandaro[edit]


Page: The Tomorrow People (U.S. TV series)

Diff: [1]

Comment/question: It wasn't my edit that caused the error. It was someone else's edit.

Nandaro (talk) 06:52, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the notification, this is indeed an incorrect notification, the first from ReferenceBot I've ever seen. A930913 will want to check this out. Anyway, I've fixed the reference. Huon (talk) 11:20, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
As a longtime ReferenceBot watcher, I agree that this appears to be a false positive, the first I've seen. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:20, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

ReferenceBot – Johnjurohill[edit]


"Link or URL errors detected on "the crossing church Minnesota) for references.""


Ran error check, no errors found... What are the next steps to remedying this?

Johnjurohill (talk) 17:29, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

The bot linked to the wrong edit in its posting on the editor's Talk page. It was the next edit that caused a URL error.
The URL error has been fixed in a subsequent edit by another editor. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:49, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

BracketBot – Benwing[edit]

User:A930913, User:Dru_of_Id, User:Legoktm, User:Bgwhite

Page: Old English phonology


Historical linguistics articles frequently use < to indicate "derives from" and > to indicate "produces, results in". Every time I modify a page that uses these conventions, BracketBot complains (wrongly). Can you get rid of the complaints? In general, all uses of < and > in this fashion are surrounded by spaces, which should be a hint that these aren't any sort of bracket.

Benwing (talk) 08:11, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

@Benwing: See User:BracketBot#Opting out. You can either mark certain edits as "not to be patrolled" or, if you commonly edit such articles, opt out of BracketBot notifications altogether. Having the bot ignore certain brackets may have unintended side effects. Huon (talk) 21:58, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

BracketBot – Nill91 - Hello BracketBot, you do not seem to understand that to be a knight you must first be knighted by the head of the royal family in England. Has Lalitha Rajapaksha been nighted thus? If so by whom?[edit]

User:A930913, User:Dru_of_Id, User:Legoktm, User:Bgwhite




Nill91 (talk) 10:17, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Many distinguished people from what was formerly known as Ceylon received knighthoods and other British honours before independence in 1948, and indeed up to 1956. Lalitha Rajapaksha (or Rajapakse) lived 1900-1976. Whatever you think of the British honours system, I don't think BracketBot is to blame in any way:-) : Noyster (talk), 12:30, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

THX for reminding me[edit]

I'll fix it

ReferenceBot – Jaydubya93[edit]




Comment/question:The diff provided is not a reference. It is a plainlist within an infobox, and appears to be correctly formatted. Thanks. UPDATE: There was a reference error on the page, which I corrected, however the diff provided did not reference it.

Jay Dubya (talk) 11:58, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Recently an issue seems to have developed whereby ReferenceBot blames not the person who causes the error, but the editor immediately before or after that. Thank you for fixing the broken reference! Huon (talk) 00:59, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

BracketBot – Nyttend[edit]

User:A930913, User:Dru_of_Id, User:Legoktm, User:Bgwhite Comment/question: You ask for the diff of the edit in question; this is easy for me, but it doesn't seem very intuitive to a new user. Could you add an explanation in the bot's message and/or here? Perhaps you could have the bot say please copy/paste the URL of the "your edit" link in your message to my operator, or perhaps your Please give a link to the diff if you can note could say You can do this by copy/pasting the URL from the "your edit" link in the bot's message.

Nyttend (talk) 16:25, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

I just realised that this previous message might be unclear. I'm not talking about any specific notifications (and I don't need any help and haven't had any problems with the bot); I'm simply asking that you change the wording in the bot's message. Nyttend (talk) 02:18, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

BracketBot – Sjwells53[edit]

User:A930913, User:Dru_of_Id, User:Legoktm, User:Bgwhite

Page:Henry Bromley (died 1615), Thomas Bromley.


Glad you told me about some of the problems, but ) and ( are used in family trees quite a lot and seldom form pairs. I'm sure the bot can be refined to accommodate this, but I've no idea how. Generally, though, these uses will be adjacent to a |, which might help. I doubt I'm the first to comment on this, though. Sjwells53 (talk) 23:21, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Sjwells53 (talk) 23:21, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

See {{Family tree}}, where three kinds of brackets are used as substitutes for line drawing elements. The text within the template can also contain wikilinks and presumably references, however, so it should be checked (there appears to have been a wikilink bracket error in the edit referenced above). A930913, do you mind if I create a section on the BracketBot user page listing some of the common false positives? – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:35, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

I'm Sooooo sorry for my vadilsam[edit]

Exastly. I apoligize for editng bad,if you want you can ignore this message but, just for this, I am so sorry. I hope you can forgive me! -Boyrock76
